Abstract

Adsorption isotherms for CO2 in IRMOF-1 exhibit inflections that grow into pronounced steps at lower temperatures. The isotherm shapes can be predicted by molecular simulations using a rigid crystal structure, indicating that changes in the MOF crystal structure are not responsible for the steps in this system.
